Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2007 Honda Civic Owner Comments

On my 2007 Honda Civic hybrid the ima battery will suddenly drop from a charge to no charge. When this happens the car loses almost all acceleration power because the gasoline engine is forced to charge the battery up. This has happened to me during acceleration onto major highways during rush hour which is extremely dangerous without acceleration power. I would like Honda motor to address this issue instead of issuing software recalls that do nothing to the car.

Bought a 2007 Honda Civic in 2007. Took car in for maintenance at Honda dealership and was advised that I needed new tires, after less than a year. I replaced the tires and there was a vibrating noise and rumble, . took car back to dealership they said that because I got new tires it needed an alignment and the noise would stop. Noise never did stop. Replaced the tires again about 6 months ago or less and was advised that we neeeded struts, wanted a second opinion so we went to the Honda dealership and they said that the controls arms were bad and we needed new tires. This was a week ago. We purchased a $1000 extended warranty with the car. We called the warranty people after having no luck with Honda of high point, nc. The warranty compnay said that Honda told them that they made the parts wrong. This is a manufacturing defect. Even if we are out of our warranty period they should still be liable because they made the part wrong in the begining. Had they advised us of the problem over a year ago, we would not have this problem. I ahve been reading several blogs and we are not the only ones having this problem. Honda refuses to replace the part. This should be a major recall! I guess if the arms break while we are riding down the highway and we crash and die, then Honda will do something about it.

I was shifting easily from 1st to 2nd gear at 15-18mph and approximately 3K RPM. My manual transmission failed at that time, and I lost power-- nearly creating an accident. The failure involved broken teeth of the countershaft and final (ring) gear. This type of failure has been documented previously in many internet forums, but perhaps not formally. Honda should have information about models experiencing such failure, represented by the number of transmissions / countershaft / final drive gears sold by their parts distributor. As a physician, I feel that Honda should recall these vehicles immediately to prevent serious injury & road hazards from this transmission failure-- raymond bernal, M.D.
